Judith Barsi (1978)

Judith Eva Barsi

Type :  


Judith Eva Barsi (June 6, 1978 – July 25, 1988) was an American child actress. She was small in stature and often played characters younger than her actual age. After years of physical and mental abuse, Barsi and her mother were shot and killed by her father, József, in a murder–suicide.


 life and career
Barsi was the daughter of Hungarian immigrants József and Maria Barsi, who had both fled the 1956 Soviet occupation of Hungary and then emigrated to Los Angeles, California, shortly before the birth of their daughter. Maria Barsi soon began grooming her daughter to become an actress.

At the age of five, Barsi was discovered at a skating rink. She went on to appear in more than 70 commercials and guest-starring roles on television. She also appeared in several films, including Jaws: The Revenge, and provided the voice for the character of Ducky in The Land Before Time . As she was short for her age , Barsi began receiving hormone injections at UCLA to encourage her growth.

By the time she entered fourth grade, she was earning an estimated $100,000 a year, which helped her buy the family a three-bedroom house in the West Hills section of Los Angeles.

On July 25, 1988, József shot Judith in the head while she was asleep in her room. Maria, hearing the gunshot, rushed down the hall, and József shot her as well. József then poured gasoline on the bodies and set them on fire. He later went into the garage and shot himself in the head with a .32 caliber pistol.

On August 9, 1988, Barsi and her mother were interred in unmarked graves at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles. In June 2004, a fund was set up by Barsi's fan club to purchase headstones for their graves. Barsi's marker, placed on August 23, 2004, reads "In Memory of the Lovely Judith Eva Barsi *Our Concrete Angel* Yep! Yep! Yep!" in reference to Martina McBride's song about child abuse and Barsi's character Ducky's catchphrase from The Land Before Time.

Barsi's final film, All Dogs Go to Heaven, in which she voices the orphaned Anne-Marie, was released in 1989, a year and a half after her murder.
